While the boundaries of architecture and art are being traced according to different lines every day, their relationship to each other are redefined. On the base of political equations, social panorama, climate, technology, production conditions, legislative procedures and artists’ attitudes, art and architecture may accept their roles, they may be satisfied to form autonomy areas and sometimes they may be turned into resistance focuses.

If we define architecture_art as the complex relationship network formed by architecture and art, various dynamics concerning this sub-dash could be mentionned. Even if it may seem possible to discuss this network relations on the various contexts of culture, ideology, technology, media, not enough attention is drawn on media as a dynamic perhaps because it is indirectly related to discussions on form.

It can be said that media’s role as a relationship creator in both terms of the concept is fulfilled. Along with the effects on architectural and artistic production of media, the fact that media is one of the important variables of architecture_art in the sense of production or presentation field should be mentionned.

In short media in plural is named as one of the key concepts in discussions on how architecture_art expresses itself. In turn architecture_art’s expression forms effect the fundamental change dynamics. On one hand the image of architecture and art in the media is part of their reality. On the other hand media in the sense of new production tools and techniques, instead of existing as only self-representing, forms an interesting representional whole intermingling with what is represented.

Whereas to trace architecture_media’s expression via media’s, carries within itself important hints concerning how and towards where architecture and art of the twenty first century evolves. In the first meeting of Architecture_Art Symposium in the title Architecture Media Art, it is aimed to discuss current transformations on architecture and art in the context of media’s, to bring up these discussions in the political, aesthetic and historical context and the possibilty of an inter-disciplinary communication concerning actual production dynamics is intended to be exposed.

Symposium Themes First of all the way architecture is handled in press is important. To talk about the social identity of architectural taste without mentioning architectural ads, does not seem possible nowadays. Architectural criticism and architectural introduction writings are intertwined. Architecture’s magazine reknown, has begun to have an equivalent in architectural profession. Sponsorship relations, became the dominant format in terms of art production. It is discussed wether the rapprochement of market and art is a step toward democratization or a kind of domestication policy. Besides these topics, media in plural as a medium of self expression, deserves to stand on different headlines. Along with the use of space of contemporary arts in a much more creative way, the question of why the influence of this resource on architecture’s production on itself is limited is a question in itself. New techniques and technologies open ,important fields to architecture and art. Architectural photography, stands side by side with advertisement phptpgraphy as a compromising area between architecture and photography. In this context the symposium topics include the following subjects without being limited to them. Architecture and Art as a Commodity or Image Architecture, Art and Ads Art, sponsorship and customer relationships Architecture and art as a consumption object Architecture, Art and Media Architecture magazines, publishing Culture-art pages of newspapers Architectural criticism or architectural descrioption writings Architectural photography Architectural Profession and Forms of Social Perceptions of Architecture The social resources of architectural appreciation The architect’s images in the media and the star system The artist’s image in the press New Expression and Design Possibilities of Architecture The relationship of new design programs with design The influence of new technologies to architecural-art aesthetics The Space Perception and Space Production of the 21st Century The effect of contemporary art techniques to the production of space Current interpretations of space in contemporary arts The possibilities of architecture as art
